Is it?

The Left side is where you put your better blocker. Like it or not, the O is built around the QB. His health is your #1 concern long-term.

Most QBs are right-handed. Just how it is. If a guy is coming from his right side, he can see it and take appropriate measures. If a guy is coming from his left side, especially around the Left Tackle, he may be blindsided.

I don't have the stats for it, but I can almost guarantee you that when a QB gets injured in a sack, it's more likely that he got injured from his Left side and not the Right.

Even more of a guarantee, when a QB fumbles it's more than likely from the Left side as well. If you know you're gonna get hit, you protect the ball. That's what you're trained to do.


Yes it's stupid. Just because most teams prefer to have their better blocker at LT doesn't mean that's always that case either. Look at the Packers line. Bulaga/Sitton are a hell of a lot better than Clifton/Lang. It's perfectly reasonable to think that a player at RT was a better player in a given season than another player at LT.

Even assuming the left side is more important the difference really to me is not that significant (especially at the G position), a crappy RT can destroy an offense pretty much as easily as a crappy LT (see Alan Barbre).

I don't have a problem really if the best players during a season are indeed both left side players but I think it's stupid that a player on the right side is automatically dismissed and it is assumed any left side player was better. Like Sitton last year he won awards for being one of the best offensive lineman in all of football and I don't think he got anywhere near an all-pro vote. A player who sat out half the season made 1st team all-pro.

You still didn't address my 2 points though:
1) Sacks from the Left side are more likely to lead in QB injury (an assumption, I have no stats for this),
2) Sacks from the Left side are more likely to lead to fumbles (also an assumption, but from watching lots of football from 1976 to 2011, there's a lot of experience in my noggin).

Both points are why both coaches and voters have prejudices against the Right side.

I'm not saying it isn't stupid. I'm just explaining "why" it is what it is.

when you dig out an ancient thread that is long since dead you should indicate it somehow. It is very confusing.
